These are not in order of importance.
0 - the number of pairs of running shoes I had with me
These weren't great but they certainly beat my Keens.
1 - the number of pairs of sneakers I borrowed from my friend
1 - the number of black toe nails I have from wearing shoes slightly too small
3.1 - the number of miles I ran in the first run, including two miles through the woods
3 - the number of times I had to stop and tie my shoes even when they were double knotted
Now the fun starts.
3 - the number of people who passed me on my bike after I started quite far back
30 - the number of people I passed on the bike
2 - the number of people who passed me back after I passed them on the bike
17 - the number of miles I raced on my bike
Yeah I took some extra time in transition to drink a bunch of
water. Plus it let my legs stop shaking.
Proof! This is lightning fast for me.
17.5 the M.P.H. I raced those 17 miles at
Glad to be done. I liked going in the opposite direction. It made
it feel like you were doing something different.
3.1 - the number of miles I ran in the second run including two miles through the woods in the reverse direction
190 - the number of racers
140/190 - my place in the first run
115/190 - my place on the bike
140/190 my place in the second run (These places include transitions so it's a little hard to know time)
IMO medals never get old.
1 - the place I got in my age group
Nubble Lighthouse - my happy place.
2 - the number of hours I spent at the beach after the race
I had such a good time at the race and during my brief visit in NH and Maine. I was glad my friend went with me. Especially for her shoes! Just kidding. All around fun to travel with a friend.
